I became interested in finding my extended family in 2003. It has been difficult because it is so extended and involves a lot of travel. Find A Grave has been very beneficial to me in working on this project because it is impossible to travel due to illness in the family.
I appreciate all the help from the Find A Grave Contributors who have helped and inspired me, so far. And to Dudley Rinicker, I am so thankful. He took pictures that I had been trying to get for ten years of my grandparents' graves. What a Blessing.
There have been many Find A Grace Contributors who have graciously transferred memorial pages of my family to me since I started this journey. Thanks to all who have helped me.
Some of the memorials that I created are not relatives, they are memorials that were created from random photographs of stones. If you request these they will be transferred to you.
This has been a joyous and solemn journey for me.
